    Been seeing this on and off all day long. Sometimes when you check the Store, its clean, only to fill up with a new wave of fakes a few hours later. Guess there is real interest out there...

    Most make you rate before even starting the actual "app"

    Why on earth don't they (Google Play Store) just block anything with BBM in the title prior to the official release?
    Also, with the permissions required for a user to even 'check out' such an app, they might possibly have just sent their Pin, IMEI, IMSI, MAC Address, Contacts and who knows what else to some unknown person or persons.
    I'd suggest avoiding them like the plague.

    You would think that would make sense wouldn't you?

    Strange, when searching the "Play Store" for Google apps they don't seem to have the same problem with fakes.......
